If you live in Detroit, will be visiting Detroit or just want to go to Detroit on November 15th, consider checking out the 1DevDayDetroit conference. It’s a conference for software developers–especially those in the Detroit metro area–that is inexpensive and well worth your time. I’ve been there a couple of times (here’s a review of the 2012 edition) and loved it every time. There’s always a palpable mix of local developers and national names (Bruce Tate and Jennifer Marsman are topping the bill this year).
Most importantly, I learn new things each time I go and meet great people. The software developers of Detroit are proud of themselves and their craft and they show it every time at 1DevDayDetroit. Take a look at the great lineup on the session list. Also, thanks David McKinnon for giving me the chance to speak at the conference this year!
